After visiting the Jardins du Luxembourg and returning to Notre Dame we were perusing sidewalk menus and Loulou had some great (and healthy) options, nice seating options and was a final chance to do sit at a cafe and do some people watching in Paris. Service was excellent, facilities clean and accessible and had a satisfying, relaxing meal for a... More

This was on my list to try, because of the gluten free accommodations. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. They offer gluten free buns and have a dedicated fryer for gluten free items. I had a cheeseburger and fries (which can be surprisingly hard to come by gluten free). The burger was juicy and cooked as ordered (medium) and the... More

We stopped for coffees and a rest. The staff were very friendly, the coffee was really good and we were able to just sit and chat and watch the world go by without being rushed to give up our table or buy anything else. Would definitely recommend this place.

Nice outdoor terrace overlooking Boulevard Saint Germain is always on the sunny side (as long as it is sunny in Paris). Staff is... More

Great Acia Bowl, Hippie Bowl, Smoked Salmon Salad, Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake! Staff was very friendly, helping us navigate Paris metro, cell phone problems, and sights to see. We'll definitely be back and will be recommending Loulou to our friends visiting Paris!

Simply as the subject. I like the green juice, it rare the so pure drink in a restaurant. You could have a healthy dinner there too. The food there looks delicious but low calorie. I will be back there anyway. 下班后喝一杯的好地方。我喜欢绿汁,难得餐馆里有如此纯粹饮料。你也可以在那里吃顿健康的晚饭,食物看起来很有食欲但卡路里不高的样子。我会再去的。

Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
